Working from her studio in Welbeck, Nottinghamshire, Jane Withers, together with her partner Michael Hamner, create contemporary knitted fabrics for their home and fashion products using hand operated knitting machines.
Inspired by patterns and colours of their rural surrounding, they use natural fibres such as merino wool, linen and cotton and are currently using yarns from British suppliers only.
Jane trained at Nottingham Trent University in knitwear design and since 2000 has concentrated on making and developing her own knitted fabrics, along with Michael who is experienced in knit production.
“Janie’s cushions in beautiful muted colours with a chunky, tactile texture. Each cushion is individual with a slightly different stitch pattern. A perfect match for any sofa.”
